Our family just love this venue, especially for watching old films. The original vintage decor really adds to the atmosphere of the occasion. The fact that you can purchase an alcoholic drink and take it into the viewing is pretty novel too, especially mulled wine with mince pies at Christmas when you are watching the old standards like, "It's a...

This cinema beats the hell out of a massive multiplex any day of the week. Small, comfortable, great films (mostly art-house/independent) and a bar.

interesting mix of foreign and independent films as well as the usual. It has a good bar so you can take some nice wine or beer in with you and there are more comfortable seats and more leg room than you will be used to fro the big film theaters. I've gone to see some of the national theater productions... More

We loved this place, very cosy film theatre. Nice selection of films. Loved it that the seats where bought by people, we sat on the chair from Tilda Swinton, how cool is that! The theatre was also not to busy, like the mainstream one nearby.

My daughter is 5 so the Saturday morning screenings are perfect for introducing her to the cinema. The kids can go and enjoy the full movie experience without having to be told constantly not to make any noise. The seats are a great price too.

The GFT in Rose Street shows films not likely to be seen in modern cinemas, but shows mainstream movies as well. Old favourites such as It's a Wonderful Life are screened here at Christmas time. The theatre has retained its original feel, a nice nostalgic place to visit. There is also a cafe/restaurant which is very popular with movie-goers.
